If you are using a backend for your plugin, what do you use?
I’m using NodeJS with a basic JSON database (nedb) on Glitch.com but I’d like to go a bit more serious for my next project. I need the backend for an API which would validate license purchases through Gumroad API (small part) and could store and send some plugin user data (main part).
I feel very lost because most of the hosting providers I can find require you to set up a VM and I don’t want to. Are there simpler methods? Am I even searching in the right direction? I found some platforms but how do I know they are the right fit?
